British Airways will offer a free chauffeur service for its first class customers flying out of Sydney from July 1.
Passengers will be whisked from home or office to Sydney Airport, and back again at the end of their trip, in a Jaguar or Range Rover provided under contract by Unity Executive Services.
While the airline has yet to reveal how many kilometres will be complimentary before an additional per-km fee kicks in, it's likely to be within the same radius as offered by Qantas and Emirates (40km) and Etihad (50km).
However, one wrinkle is that those three airlines all provide a free ride to passengers in business class as well as first class, at odds with BA's first-only policy.
Also on July 1st, Qantas will extend its Chauffeur Drive service to flights between Australia and Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Santiago and Johannesburg, in addition to the current destinations of London and Dubai.
Meanwhile, Garuda will launch a free door-to-door limousine service for business class flyers in Brisbane as part of the Indonesian airline's new Brisbane-Denpasar flights in August.
